Vayudeva Varadan just finished six days of pilgrimage at the monastery. During his stay he worked on writing some short summaries to display with the books in the Mini Mela. He completed 48 summaries for books and booklets.
The Loving Ganesha summary:
“If you open this book, you will always want it with you. The book opens doors to Lord Ganesha who waits patiently to help you with every problem, every wish, big or small, inner or outer.
“Loving Ganesha is a resource you can use to learn, teach, or remember blessings, songs, prayers, festivals — even a Ganesha Puja. Loving Ganesha explains all things Ganesha in simple, touching, yet authoritative prose along with engaging illustrations.”
Religion needs to be of the present. Mankind is evolving spiritually; mass consciousness is rising. When we go to the temple, in the right spirit, contributing devotion and prana, being open to the blessings of the Deity; it purifies the mind. The Hindu religion focuses on the mind; purifies it; controls it, subdues the ego, makes us more humble.
